The 5 Best Resorts in Fiji for a Romantic Getaway

Qamea resort, Fiji

From candlelit dining on a tree platform to swimming at remote waterfalls and toasting the sunset in style, these Fijian stays will make you feel like the tropics were designed just for two.

Best For Private Dining: Nanuku Auberge Resort

Nanuku Auberge Resort, Fiji

Reach romantic heights, literally, at Nanuku Auberge Resort with a candlelit dinner on a wooden platform nestled in the twisting branches of a 70-year-old dilo tree. At a white linen-draped table with the waters of Beqa Lagoon lapping gently below, expect a multi-course seafood feast of reef trout barbecued on sugarcane skewers or grilled lobster with herb-driven salsas.

Hugging a white sand beach on the Coral Coast of Fiji’s main island, Nanuku’s other dining experiences for two are hosted on a clifftop at sunset or the sandy-toed splendour of sitting directly on the beach. Back in the private beachfront villa, sipping champagne and stargazing is the perfect ending to the day.

Best Exclusive Retreat: Vomo Island Resort

Vomo Island Resort, Fiji

A 15-minute helicopter ride from the mainland sets the tone for Vomo Island’s 87 hectares of private bliss. Found at the northernmost part of the pristine Mamanuca Islands, Vomo delivers the full measure of tropical wonder with beachfront villas nestled among palm trees – each private verandah decked out with sun loungers and a hammock.

If the hour-and-a-half walk circumnavigating the island doesn’t make you feel like the only people on earth, a kayaking trip to the deserted neighbouring islet Vomo Lailai certainly will. Late afternoons are all about the adults-only beach club The Rocks, with the world’s most photogenic infinity pool complete with submerged seating and a sea-view terrace and daybeds ideal for watching the sunset.

Best For Couples’ Wellness: Qamea

Qamea resort, Fiji

When getting away from it all counts, look no further than this remote adults-only slice of Paradise. Reached only by boat from the island of Taveuni following an 80-minute scenic flight from Nadi comes Qamea, an ultra-boutique resort with just 17 thatched roof bures nestled amid coconut palms and manicured tropical gardens.

The resort’s natural beauty is waiting to be explored with guided hikes on ancient paths through the thick jungle or yoga in the open-air beachfront pavilion. Realign your chakras with a Fijian warm seashell massage using tropical oils at Soulness Spa or indulge in a private spa evening of champagne, deluxe couples’ treatments and a candlelit outdoor shower before a private dinner in your bure serenaded by local musicians.

Best Eco-Friendly Escape: Matava Fiji

Matava Fiji

With quartz-clear waters a haven for manta rays, brilliantly coloured fish and vivid coral gardens, the Great Astrolabe Barrier Reef certainly lives up to its reputation as one of the world’s most amazing underwater sites.

The pristine setting also hosts Matava Fiji, one of the South Pacific’s leading eco-resorts. On the remote island of Kadavu – a tropical Eden with few roads or crowds – this is Fiji at its most untamed, with rugged jungle trails leading to remote waterfalls and deserted coves lapped by the turquoise waters.

Designed for maximum privacy, each bure has its own elevated deck overlooking the South Pacific, creating the perfect setting for sunset cocktails or a romantic dinner for two with chefs well versed in spicing up the scene with lightly seared coral trout in a tomato and chilli sauce with salad from the island’s organic garden.

Best For Not Lifting A Finger: Castaway Island Fiji

Castaway Island, Fiji

Be shipwrecked in style at this Robinson Crusoe-worthy island in the Mamanuca Island chain. A 90-minute boat ride from Port Denarau on the mainland takes you to Castaway Island Fiji. The resort displays like a far-flung paradise where the thatch-roofed buildings resemble a traditional Fijian village and jungle-covered hills tower over the private island’s vanilla sand beaches.

Take off for a champagne brunch on nearby Modriki Island, immortalised in the film Cast Away, or stay close to base and enjoy the resort’s adults-only zones of a vast lagoon-style swimming pool with a swim-up bar. And at the outdoor Restaurant 1808, grilled coconut and lemongrass prawns and papaya panna cotta with candied pineapple are perfect for the balmy night air.
